Tamasi Nishai Ankhi Dube Jai

Tamasi nishai ankhi dube jai

Chapal praner kato bedanai

Ar nai asha bani

Britha manaber akuti bhakati

Chira jagrata jage abanati

Alik swapan muktir abhilash

Ananda uchcchash

Phire chai pran phire chai arbar

Timir dainya jatanar manihar


Translation

My eyes sink in darkness-night.

My restless life suffers excruciating pangs.

There is no more hope-message.

It is all in vain

That human beings cry.

It is all in vain

That human devotion tries

To reach some height.

Failure is reigning supreme.

Again and again, I wish to become

The flood of delight.

How I wish to receive once more the sea of delight,

To put an end to my heart’s excruciating pangs.
